David Brandstätter / Shifts, Malgven Gerbes / Shifts
In the frame of Open Spaces!
The human being in the interplay between social utopia and digital DNA.
Zero and one. It started out so simply. Now we’re asking ourselves where it all leads. Do Google and Facebook serve the world community or do they control it? Where is the digital utopia in the dystopic scenarios of the future? »Feeding Back« runs through the reciprocal effects of the digital world in real time and the performers, unplugged, negotiate more than the dynamics of the networks. The audience themselves are also protagonists as well as the subcutaneous rules of the game for the evening. They all work like digital algorithms. What do zeros and ones make out of our public spirit? What is actually happening here?
